In recent years I have devoted myself to knowing God for there is nothing greater than knowing him and being known by him. Most of my life has been spent knowing about God, but knowing about him is not the same as knowing him. My desire has not been rooted in pride or arrogance, but in a sincere desire to know the Lord God and his beloved Son as much as can be humanly possible. What man can truly know God for all that we see are only glimpses of how great He is? My quest has not been rooted in knowledge for how can I know God? I pondered about what can I truly know about God, what can I understand with all that I am, and the answer was simple yet profound. My quest to know God has been rooted in love, for God is love, and it is in love and through love that we can know him in many wondrous ways. I yearn and I long to be broken so that I might be filled. Brokenness requires surrender, trust, and acceptance, but it begins with awareness and acknowledgement of who He is and of who I am. With acceptance and surrender we move deeper into the place of awareness, and awareness increases understanding which grows to a place where we know and in knowing we shall be known. Brokenness comes before holiness and holiness comes before fullness and power. My heart desires to know the Lord and to be filled by his presence but first I must be surrendered and broken before him. Psalm 51 was written by a man with a broken heart, but also by a man with a heart that loved God and deeply desired to know him, and that Psalm is one I read often as I seek to be united in heart.

A life well lived is a life spent in knowing God.  I believe that statement and I know many if not all in this forum believe the same. Have a blessed day.  

This is refreshing to see on Worthy. God bless

 Jhn 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

 Jhn 14:7 “If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”

 Jhn 14:8 Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”

 Jhn 14:9 Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?

 Jhn 14:10 “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works.

Eph 3:16  that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, Eph 3:17  so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, Eph 3:18  may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, Eph 3:19  and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Tigger56 and your dear wife, brother may I take this opportunity to congratulate you on and in your quest to Know God and to make Him Known. That statement is the Statement of Faith of Loren Cunningham, the founder of YWAM, youth with a mission, of which my wife and I were involved with in the 80's. Is this not the heart of every fair dinkum believing saint, oh, to know Him and the power of His resurrection was the heart cry of the apostle Paul, and in like manner should be ours also. I look forward to reading more of your posts in the days that lay ahead, while He tarries, God bless.
